NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported recently that several players on the Dallas Cowboys were feeling unwell. Some players were forced to miss Thursday’s practice as a result.
Today, the Cowboys added Trevon Diggs, cornerback, and Donovan Wilson as injury reports to their injury list. Due to illness, both players were DNPs.
Wilson and Diggs have not been tested positive for COVID-19.The same cannot be said for rookie linebacker Micah Parsons and All-Pro offensive tackle Tyron Smith.
Diggs, Wilson are bot listed as questionable at this time for Saturday’s match against the Philadelphia Eagles. Safety Jayron Kearse and running back Tony Pollard are both questionable for Week 18.
Tyron Smith and Anthony Brown were placed on the COVID list Friday. Trevon Diggs and Donovan Wilson did not practice Thursday because of an illness and are questionable for Saturday's game at Philadelphia. Same with Jayron Kearse (hamstring), Tony Pollard (foot).

It is worth keeping an eye on Diggs’ condition for Saturday’s game. If he’s inactive, the Cowboys’ secondary will be without its top playmaker.
Diggs has a total of 52 combined tackles, 21 passes defensed, and 11 interceptions in 16 games this season. Diggs is the definition of a ball hawk.
With Wilson and Kearse also questionable this week, the Cowboys may have to give Kelvin Joseph and Israel Mukuamu extended playing time on Saturday.
Although the Cowboys have already won the NFC East, they are trying to build some momentum before the playoffs.
